Does anyone had to pay $25.00 brokerage to UPS to get the free version v2008 ?
I got two updates from Garmin: I had to pay $23.24 for the first one and nothing for the 2nd one!!! I am told duty is based on the way Garmin describes the product before they send it!!
And we are supposed to have "free trade" between Canada & US!!!
Merci, Thank you
Yeah...right. Wait till they open the borders with Mexico!
Garmin shipped my Mapsource CD and it was 'duty free' as they say. A couple of weeks later my map update was sent and I paid 11.00 and change for brokerage.
I have packages shipped cross-border all the time. UPS is the absolute worst for brokerage fees. Fedex and DHL are better, and USPS rarely charges any brokerage fees.
Still, I'm not complaining. I did receive the update for 'free'.
Good point. I had to pay duties on the package delivered by UPS. The "duty free" package was delivered by a different courier company.
The update was free of charge from garmin. But...
BROK FEE: 18.46$
BROK GST: 1.03$
UPS driver collected this amount, 24.54$, for import charges
Based on value for duty of 36.24$, from UPS...
Garmin: invoice total: 0.00$ USD
brokerage fees suck huh? too bad there is nothing you can do
Sent USPS (United States Postal Service)
Description (field 1) was marked "GPS Equip", value $34.29.
Field 10 was "Airmail/Priority"
Field 11 was "Commercial sample"
Ordered mine in February delivered in April, no charge at all was in my Ottawa mailbox. No customs fees etc etc...
